Talk about an unintended GOP political ad

While reporting live outside a polling place for New Hampshire's primary Tuesday, MSNBC's Katy Tur discussed supporters of Democratic candidate and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, noting some of them are "really excited" about Sanders while others are scared of his "ideas" — i.e., socialism.

To get a personal take, Tur turned to folks on the ground and approached her very first interview subject: "Sir, can you tell us who you voted for?"

Without hesitation the man replied, "Donald John Trump."


Tur held it together for what clearly wasn't the response she anticipated and volleyed back, "Bernie Sanders is not appealing to you?"

Then came some free fodder for the Trump campaign, right from the gentleman's mouth: "The whole ideology would be destructive to the country. It is anti-growth, it's anti-family. It's anti-American. And as a Roman Catholic, it's anti-life."

Tur, sensing things weren't headed in the right direction, quickly thanked the man and moved on to other voters — but again, with no luck. The two men she approached wouldn't tell her who they voted for, with one completely blowing her off: "Of course not. Because you're a celebrity you think you could get away with this."

But she took the rejection well, admitting with laughter that she was "striking out" with the close-to-the-vest voters.

Anything else?

Sanders, 78, narrowly beat former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg in New Hampshire while U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota took third.

And as for Trump? Well, he smashed New Hampshire's vote record for incumbents in a primary election:

Maybe that man on the street who voted for Trump wasn't such an anomaly after all.
